Does Fileshare require an Xbox 360 Hardrive?

Man, I’ve made too many lame Hardrive requirement posts.
I could really care less about Theater Mode, which is why I don’t have an Xbox 360 Hardrive. Anywho, do you need an Xbox 360 Hardrive. I have three maps, custom game tested, and they work fine. They’re saved on a USB. I’m also using a trial membership right now, is that a problem? You get the idea, I just need an answer. Anyone care to clue me in?

Probably, as I do recall requiring an Xbox LIVE Gold membership to access and use the FileShare system in previous Halo games.

Is fileshare even working at the moment?

Pretty sure you need an official harddrive. My friend used a 200 GB external USB harddrive and it doesn’t let him get films or use fileshare.

I just don’t like how I can get a super nice USB but it dozen’t let me download maps.
